Hardly a reason to pick someone first star


I think it was the nature of his injury (stroke.) Which I guess isn't really an injury, but you get the idea.

He's young.
And had a stroke.
It's awesome he was able to play again.
I get it.
And im sure you can see why.

As well they should.

 

I'm nitpicking, but Jurco gets bumped to the 3rd line and Abby gets moved up.

Seniority? I dunno. Seemed to work. I think Jurco may have had two tonight (I’m convinced he tipped Sheahan’s shot on the tying goal). 

 

I love that kid. He can play on any of the four lines and make them all better. And he’s only 21. Total success story. 100% good vibes.

He's been awesome, but Tatar is much better when Jurco plays on his wing.

That’s because Jurco’s awesome. That was my point. Right now, I think he could play on any four lines and make them all better.  He as all of Abby’s tools ( a little less physical) + hands.

I got your point I just wanted to reiterate that I want him with Tatar.

How fitting is that, my 3.000 post - no I'm not bragging just found it fitting - and the Wings clinched for the 23 time :-)

 

anyway congratulations to Babcock and the young guns to be honest I really didn't expect this so hopefully we are never going to read "Nyquist, Sheahan, Tatar or Jurco" are sent down to make place for  [insert over the hill vet] again. I also didn't have much fun watching a lot of Wings games this season but thanks to the young guns I can enjoy the game again.

 

Love the way Babs is calling out Sindy and the Tankuins :-)

Ugh while I've hated a long time on Jimmy's poke check Gus's does us in either way I think both struggle badly at this neals goal could have been stopped there are countless examples of Howard being very very embarrassed poke checking
A series against Boston would be epic with hank z at full strength and in the luneup
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

You either poke check or you don't. There's no magical poke check formula that only the elite are allowed to know. It was very bad luck, he poked the puck, then it jumped up over him and cruised perfectly back down into the net.

You guys are forgetting Malkin didn't play. Not sure if he's going to be ready for the playoffs or not but he's an ENORMOUS factor. I would have loved the win to cap off a great night though. 23 years it is. Go Wings!

f*** Malkin all he's good for is diving and acting stupid after the game is over. ;)


I would argue Malkin has been more dangerous to the Wings than Crosby. I don't know their point totals vs the Wings but Crosby always seems to struggle against us. Malkin doesn't as much. I do worry about him.

Not to be a Debbie downer BUT why is everyone putting Zetterberg in the lineup? Is his first skate not today? Holland made it very clear that this "skate" of Z's means very, very little. He hasn't been on skates in months, and they want to see how it goes....The line up last night is what it's going to be for the first round and a half is my guess. I liked Goose with Tatar but Jurco would look great there with them! I'm so stoked for these playoffs!

So proud of this team. I am so happy that they made the playoffs. Whatever happens this year, I am so proud to be a Wings fan. I know that the future is bright, but it will be interesting to see how they perform against the top teams in the East. LGW! Best franchise in sports!

Holland makes some questionable moves, but in the end, even I can appreciate the moves he makes...

 

Let's seriously hope we have seen the last of Cleary, Sammy and Bertuzzi.  Please let Q and Monster walk as well.  Oh and trade Kindl and waive Lashoff.  :lol: Asking a lot am I?

 

I have to ask one more time, just how genius was getting Legwand at the 11th hour on March 5? Wow, we needed him and he has given us big time timely points.  We sold a bit of the future for him, but really we aren't going to miss Eaves or the (now) 2nd round pick.  Jarnkrok, yes, great prospect, but look at the guys we have in Detroit now and the next couple to come up next year and the next.  Future is still bright and Holland made a great move! All you haters cannot deny he made an executive decision and it played a huge part in Detroit making it 23!

 

edit:  Honestly, with our kids and our stars signed for the next million years, I cannot see a year we don't make the playoffs...this was our down year, we are only going to get better and better...
